Just like the many sharks swimming in Congress, China’s newest star lawyers simply have no heart

LawyerCartoonSharks

If our Congress ever gets back in session, forty percent of the members will have passed the Bar – far fewer than a hundred years ago, when nearly 80 percent of our legislators were lawyers.

And the good news is that soon there may be even fewer lawyers in Congress, eventually none, because the legal “profession” is headed to extinction.

Don’t we need a nearly inebriated buffoon to charge us $600 an hour to fight a traffic ticket, a slick con man to “help” us get swindled, or maybe just the assistance of a voracious ambulance chaser, who jacks up our insurance rates with outlandish settlements?

For example, we now have 10,000 immigration lawyers in the United States (probably 90% of the world’s lawyers practicing in this field), partially because the U.S. has the most complex set of immigration laws and the largest immigration bureaucracy of any country. Complex always means higher fees for attorneys.

Incredibly, the big law firms are now even recruiting H-1B Visa candidates from places like Australia to swell their ranks even more.

Hope is on the way. Imagine very few lawyers in America, saving us all a fortune in hot air and cold cash. Continue reading →

China begins Super AI program while America plans downloading vast knowledge into soldiers’ brains

For China – good news! For humanity – possible extinction!

The People’s Republic of China has vowed to become a world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) within a decade, and the government will spend billions on developing computers that are capable of thinking for themselves. The Communist powerhouse wants to become world leader in the field within a decade.

China has issued a “national AI development plan” to exceed efforts by Western market leaders, including Google and Microsoft.  The Chinese will spend $22.15 billion on AI research by 2020, and $59.07 billion by 2025. Because of their government-owned defense industry and low wages, the actual costs – comparable to the U.S. – will be five to ten times those numbers, far exceeding American investment Continue reading →

Trilateral Commission turned China into giant technocracy to serve investors and corporations

Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, died Friday.

He was responsible for most of America’s economic woes today caused by our monstrous foreign trade deficit, fortunes and lives lost in Afghanistan, trillions wasted in the Cold War.

Brzens

Leading the Trilateral effort, Brzezinski became National Security Advisor for President James Carter, and in May 1978, against State Department wishes, began talks that led to full diplomatic relations in December that year.

Brzezinski’s “nor­mal­iza­tion” of rela­tions with Com­mu­nist China was designed to change it tech­no­log­i­cally into a super power.

The following year the Washington Post reports in a February article – China Policy: A Born-Again Brzezinski – how Zbigniew describes his meeting with Cyrus Vance and China’s leader, Deng Xiaoping (Teng): Continue reading →

China winning the real World War against America

During the Vietnam War, my part-time job was correspondent for the United States Information Agency (USIA), and one assignment portended today’s global power alignment.

The assignment was to interview ten ministers from various African nations to gain their impressions of a trip they were concluding in the United States. The article would be translated for their nation’s newspapers after review by Washington officials.

My recollection was a 500-word report to be sent Western Union to USIA headquarters (@ $1 a word). I was paid $30.

The ministers had gathered at  International House, Chestnut St., Philadelphia, and some were dressed American-style and others were in native garb.

I introduced myself as a writer from USIA and then the room filled with shouts.

“You are not USIA! You are CIA…” Continue reading →

That buy your green card pitch by Kushner’s sister in China renews controversy over visas for the rich

If you had $300 during the Civil War you could avoid that first Draft by just paying the dough and walking away. No money, you could go to jail or possibly become one of the 620,000 Americans killed on the battlefields.

When it comes to citizenship, the rich don’t need to climb that wall or swim that Rio Grande, now they just put up money, $500,000 or more to be exact, to invest in some project in the U.S. and agree that somehow that will create ten new jobs.

Some 85% of all these “investment citizens” are from China. The deal is called EB-5 Visa, and not only can you become an American, but so can the wife and children – all for the same price.

By this criterion, anyone with enough money can buy citizenship. Poor folks need not apply.

The program was extended last week by President Donald Trump, even though he said he had qualms about it during the campaign last year. The day after he signed the extension, the Kushner organization was in Beijing, selling investments in the luxury apartment building, One Journal Square, that is set to be built next year in Jersey City. A brochure blasted:

“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”

Will “security at any cost” traitors follow China’s example to virtually ban Internet free speech?

While most eyes are on a surprising election in America today, fascist China has announced plans to strip its 1.4 billion residents of their freedom of expression on the Internet.

chinawebOnce a Socialist, then a Communist nation, China today is a plutocracy that coordinates private corporations and government entities, brainwashing its population, forcing them to “think properly” or face institutional retribution.

This means that every member of the government and media – all teachers, authors and politicians – follow the same directives. Collusion is the order of the day, although hidden from the public. It’s somewhat like the Press giving the questions in advance to the favored candidate, but on a grander scale.

Despite propaganda here, China is doing very well, primarily from gobbling up American factories and seizing American jobs, thanks to cooperation from leaders of the corporate/government combine in this country. For example, lifespan of the Continue reading →

After killing 58,307 American soldiers, Vietnam wins again, along with Boeing and Pratt & Whitney

President Barack Obama has lifted the decades-long U.S. arms embargo against Vietnam, allowing sales of deadly weapons to a government that killed or wounded more than 200,000 Americans.

The final surrender is very good for big business, lobbyists and campaign contributors to politicians. The decision is also a desecration of American lives lost, soldiers Continue reading →

Chinese women retire 17 years earlier than us, but moronic scolds want to hike pension age even higher

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, pontificated about plans to cut Social Security on Thursday, last week, at the Urban-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center, Washington, DC.  Brady wants to cut Social Security by not only raising the retirement age to 70, but also imposing means testing to cut benefits. He advocated “creating a true cost-of-living for seniors,” meaning using the chained-CPI cost-of-living adjustment formula to further reduce benefits. Chained CPI is lower than the CPI used to adjust everything else.

Brady’s only accomplishment, other than public office, was serving as an executive at the Rapid Cities (ND) Chamber of Commerce before he moved to Texas..

In addition to gutting Social Security he pushes for lower taxes, deficit reduction and Continue reading →

China has destroyed our factories and jobs because of its unfair import VAT policy, not just currency manipulation

BL-US-china-tradeAlmost 80% of the Senate (78-20) just voted for a measure that would cite foreign nations for manipulating the value of their currency, although the enforcement of any penalties was not and will not be addressed. But the real purpose of the vote was to give Democrats license to vote for Fast Track authority without seeming to be enemies of the middle class worker and the small businesses of the United States. The illusion will probably stick, as many hail this “bipartisan” action as the way to markedly reduce unfair trade practices – particularly by China.

Even the Washington Post, owned by Amazon’s CEO, explained: “… economists say such ma­nipu­la­tion is no longer prevalent and that the longtime poster child of currency ma­nipu­la­tion — China — has gradually stopped doing it.” So much for reality, when politicians have a chance to curry favor with big multinational benefactors for campaign cash and future lush (two martini lunch, anyone?) private sector jobs.

NY Times Wong says I’m right

More on swine flu battle in China. This is from NY Times:

By EDWARD WONG
Published: November 11, 2009

CHANGGANG, China — Few farmers in this southern village gave much thought to the epidemic that had begun spreading rapidly in the United States early this summer until the authorities sealed its 100 residents off from the outside world for about a week. It turned out that a visitor from California had shown symptoms of the swine flu virus, or H1N1, when he arrived for a funeral.

The village of Changgang was quarantined for about a week. Quarantines and medical detentions are among the aggressive measures that Chinese officials have taken to slow the transmission of H1N1, which quickly spread worldwide after being diagnosed first in North America.

To protests from around the world, China isolated entire planeloads of people entering the country if anyone on the plane exhibited flulike symptoms. Local authorities canceled school classes at the slightest hint of the disease and ordered students and teachers to stay home. China was virtually alone in taking such harsh measures, which continued throughout most of the summer.

Now, Chinese and foreign health officials say that some of those contested measures — more easily adopted by an authoritarian state — may have helped slow the spread of the disease in the world’s most populous country. China has not had to cope with a crush of cases, and it began administering a vaccine for swine flu in early September, the first country to do so.

Foreign officials also say that China demonstrated an unusual openness to sharing information about H1N1 with its citizens and other governments, in contrast to its secretive approach to the near pandemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, a few years ago.

That is not to say that China has been spared. On Tuesday, Health Ministry officials reported an “explosive” growth of H1N1 on the mainland because of the onset of winter, with 5,000 new cases in the previous three days pushing the total to more than 59,000.

At least 30 people have died here after contracting H1N1.

Exact data on the virus are hard to pin down; many more cases are suspected than confirmed, and countries often use different methods to identify cases. Still, the indications in China are much more positive than those in India. Like China, India has more than a billion people, many living in poor, rural conditions, and was exposed to the virus after it had been identified in the West. The Indian Health Ministry has reported 505 deaths.

The United States, where the virus was spreading before it was identified in the spring, has reported more than two million cases and about 4,000 deaths in a population of 300 million.
